FAQ

Psychology FAQ | Center for Integrative Psychology West Bloomfield, MI - Boy_Smiling_Wide_Open_FAQWhat kind of people does the center tend to work with?

The Center for Integrative Psychology has extensive experience with children six and older, and we enjoy working with people throughout the adult lifespan. We have seen thousands of teenagers and young adults, as well as individual adults and couples. The people who come to our center tend to be bright, successful people who have areas in their life where things are not working as well as they could. They are motivated to change and have the courage to look at the patterns of their own thinking and take action to make things different in their life.

What days are available for client appointments?

We see people in our West Bloomfield office on weekdays from nine in the morning with our last appointment starting at seven in the evening. We work Tuesday through Saturday. On Saturday we see people from 9 to 4.

How often would I come in?

Neuromodulation works best when it is done at least twice a week.  This helps create a momentum for change in the brain.  After 20 to 30 sessions we typically add Z score training for another 15 sessions as a finishing process for the treatment.   
 
For traditional psychotherapy we usually see people once per week, sometimes more frequently if there is a crisis. As treatment progresses and we began to see good clinical change then we begin to space appointments over time to move towards ending therapy.

What is the length of treatment?

Neuromodulation/Neurofeedback 20 to 40 sessions.

For psychotherapy the average number of sessions is 15, although there is a very large range based on individual circumstance. We continue treatment until the individual feels comfortable that they have made the life changes necessary to function without continued therapeutic support. 

How long does a session last?

  • The initial psychosocial history session typically takes an hour.
  • Subsequent psychotherapy sessions are usually 45 minutes.
